agreed it is fun pushing kochmans buttons.

My only point is regardless of all of our preferences, what other band was doing what they did all those years? With the exception of the last couple of years maybe, who else comes close?

You have to go outside rock into the jazz world to find anyone to compare- folks like Miles or McCoy Tyner that was around before and after the boys. Then again, those are individual musicians working with different folks over time, not groups. As far as "rock" goes, I can't really think of any band (perhaps a few individuals like my beloved RT) with any similar type of longevity and adding new material all along the way. I guess some would say the Allmans, but I haven't listend or cared about them since I was a young dope on punk (although I like both Derek and Warren). Perhaps George Clinton's ever rotating cast of characters comes close, but they still rely on material from the '70s, so again, I'm at a lost to think of another group. Someone help me.

The only other band that really blew my socks of in the mid Eighties was Stevie Ray Vaughn.

yes, I should of mentioned Jazz. That's true. But in terms of pop/rock I'm talking the magic factor. There are hosts of musicians more disciplined thatn the GD were BUT none of them really transported me places.
